That's rich, coming from you, John. You constantly remind us that Jesus was a liberal.

If you ACTUALLY read the Gospels, you would see that, when it came to most social issues, Jesus Christ was/is a liberal.
If you can't tell the difference between political and social issues, then I feel sorry for you - or the person who taught you this is a complete moron.

Now you are beginning to see the real Jesus---one who warned repeatedly of the problem with riches, the sinfulness of hierarchy (respecting position among men), and demanding we forget the worse parts of the "LAW" (as in an eye for an eye---commanded, supposedly by God Himself in the OT).

Jesus was the penultimate liberal. The question is, why aren't you? The answer lies in introspection and comparison of one's heart with His.

OK, I know it's bad form, Warden, to correct someone's grammar on the board, but I think you just meant "ultimate". Penultimate means "second to last".

But wait--The Holy Spirit could be viewed as the ultimate liberal--so there ya go!

(Deep theological thoughts...)

Exhibit A. You have no business lecturing someone about political rants.

Thank you. I was an English major, but I think my age is beginning catch up to me as even my wife has pointed out my improper use of words in talking. And memory is sliding, too. Recently I could not recall the name of a cousin I've known for years. So I'm getting posts in while I can.

MysticPhD has informed me of some improper word usage as well.

For so it seemed good in Thy eyes, Lord.

It would have been OK if he had written "End Times" at the end of it, that would have made it Christian.

I didn't think you'd mind, since your posts are always so well-written.

I do a little writing, and I belong to a writers group that exchanges work for critique. I enjoy receiving critical feedback on my work--it has helped me a great deal when it's done thoughtfully--but I'm embarrassed when someone catches a dumb word misuse or grammar error of mine. I spent a good deal of my working life catching OTHER people's errors and rewriting some really badly written documents prepared by engineers, who are not always known for their command of written English.

Alas, I am not as perfect as I expect myself to be.

Exhibit A - The phrase "Conservative Christian" is an oxymoron. A person is either a conservative or a Christian. It is IMPOSSIBLE to be both.
For example - If a person punches you on the left side of your face, then Christians are supposed to
A. Shoot the other person.
B. Punch the other person.
C. Run away.
D. Cry
E. ALLOW the other person to punch us on the right side of your face.

If you actually read the Gospels, you would know that the answer is E.

So which candidate is the best Christian - Trump, Cruz, or someone else?
But as I said in the first post, it really doesn't matter.

You completely missed my point.
